The Algarve / East Algarve region
The Algarve is well known for its many Blue Flag beaches, some of the finest in Europe. The closest beaches can be found at Faro, Quarteira and Vilamoura, each about 30 minutes drive, traffic permitting! But if the peace of the country is more to your liking then you really are spoilt for choice in and around the local area. There are dams, picnic spots and trails with magnificent panoramic views over the mountains. All within walking distance and often there's hardly another soul in sight.
It also has many top quality golf courses throughout the region. The most convenient courses for the Sao Bras area are located around Tavira, just 20 minutes away via the motorway or slightly longer (25 minutes) via the more picturesque N270 route through Santa Catarina.
The Sao Bras de Alportel area
The town of Sao Bras de Alportel is a mere 6km (approximately 3 miles) away on well maintained tarred roads. Here you will find well stocked, large supermarkets, excellent (and very reasonably priced) restaurants catering for all tastes from local cuisine to Indian and Chinese. There are many cafes, shops and banks, a post office, museum, etc. There is also a local tourist bureau which is worth a visit to source local maps and places of interest. English is fairly widely spoken and communication is seldom an issue.
The larger and more bustling town of Loule is a 20 minute drive away. It is well known for its large indoor market, recently renovated and full of varied and interesting things to buy, from fresh fish, meat and vegetables to clothing, household items and curios. Saturdays are the main market days.
There are also charming, quaint villages to be found in the vast open spaces between towns, with hamlets of just four or five houses perched on a hill top. Among the attractions are Javali, Cabeca do Velho and its windmill, Corches, Pero de Amigos and Ribeira de Alportel.
If a visit to a ‘big city’ with its bars, night clubs and historic places of interest is on your list of things to do, then Faro is just 30 minutes away.
How to get there

The Algarve is very well served by a number of low cost airlines including EasyJet, RyanAir, Thomson, etc., etc. which fly from many European countries to Faro airport. The property is only 30 minutes drive from the airport. Car hire is essential as public transport to the Sao Bras area is infrequent and would not be suitable for holiday makers. Most of the well known international car rental companies, as well as some very reasonably priced local operations, are represented at Faro airport.

We stayed at this B&B for a week and loved every minute of it. The hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly and provided us with a lovely breakfast each day. The accommodation is clean and spacious and bath towels and pool towels are changed regularly. We had everything we needed and the private pool was very welcoming to cool off. It is very quiet and situated in the middle of the hills away from it all but the town of Sao Bras is just a 5 minute drive where there is a selection of nice restaurants local Portuguese, Italian, Chinese & Indian all very reasonable, we didn't have a bad meal all week. In our opinion a car is really essential but there are bikes if you feel more energetic. There is also a supermarket a few minutes drive where you can pick up drinks and snacks. If you are looking for a lively area and niteclubs then this isn't for you but if you are looking for a chill out week its a lovely place to stay. If you have a car the main more touristy resorts are just 30 minutes drive away. We hope to come back and stay here again in the future.
Thank you for your lovely words, we enjoyed meeting you both and are so pleased you were able to chill out. We aim to give our guests the type of stay they require and we are happy to know that we have achieved that aim. We look forward to welcoming you back at some point in the future.
